Year 6 Charity Walk
Last Friday, our Year 6 pupils made the big trek along the River Thames, starting at Richmond Bridge and finishing at Putney Bridge (a distance of nearly 15km!) to raise money for the NHP Foundation. The children set up their own JustGiving fundraising pages in the run up to the charity walk. A heartfelt thank you to the family and friends of Year 6 for supporting the children to raise £4034.53 through sponsorship and keeping them going. Well done to Year 6 for their phenomenal fundraising efforts and for rising to the challenge.
All of the money raised will be going towards helping the work of the Notting Hill Prep Foundation, the school’s charitable arm, in support of Radius and NHP bursaries. Radius is our community partnership programme which works with local charities and primary schools to provide financial support and share resources to enhance the lives of local primary school aged children. Recently, this has seen us support projects such as: the Harrow Club junior programme, a basic lunch to raise funds for the Kensington and Chelsea Foodbank, a book drive with Oxford Gardens Primary School and the K&C Foundation’s Winter Crisis Appeal for local families. Our ambition for bursaries is to grow our programme to increase access to the life-changing opportunities provided by an NHP education. We currently support 7 pupils on means-tested bursaries and hope to increase this to 15 by 2030. Our bursaries cover not only fees, but also educational trips, enrichment, activities and incidentals that ensure all our pupils are completely integrated members in the life of the school.
